Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

1 Samuel 17:38-40 (NLT)
38 Then Saul gave David his own armor—a bronze helmet and a coat of mail. 39 David put it on, strapped the sword over it, and took a step or two to see what it was like, for he had never worn such things before. “I can’t go in these,” he protested to Saul. “I’m not used to them.” So David took them off again. 40 He picked up five smooth stones from a stream and put them into his shepherd’s bag. Then, armed only with his shepherd’s staff and sling, he started across the valley to fight the Philistine.

The scene is just within the tent of Saul.

Saul & David

The scene is just within the tent of Saul.

Saul gives David his own armour. Saul was described as being a head taller than anyone else (1 Samuel 9:2) & David at this time was only a boy, therefore I have made Saul’s armour way too big for David to wear! The bronze helmet is similarly oversized. I found reference photo’s of bronze to help me select appropriate colours.

Note: I wanted the helmet’s design to reflect Saul’s status as king, & decided to use a flower & leaf pattern that represents the plant Frankinsence. That plant’s resin was & is highly prized in the Middle East. It is used in worship & so I thought it might represent Saul’s kingly status.

Notice David’s sling & shepherds bag by his side.

Saul has his name (Sha’uwl) embossed on his crown in Hebrew text.
